Neck Pain Treatment for Tuscaloosa
How Your Tuscaloosa Chiropractor Treats Neck Pain
Neck pain can have a number of causes, including injury due to accidents, poor posture, lack of strength in core muscles, obesity, and degenerative conditions due to age, like osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease, or spinal stenosis. Your chiropractor will begin your neck pain treatment by asking questions about your neck pain symptoms and any home remedies you have tried or other treatment you have sought. Be prepared to tell the Doctors:
- When your neck pain started
- What home remedies or other treatments you have tried to relieve your neck pain
- Whether the pain seems to radiate from your neck or travel to other parts of the spine or body
- Whether anything you have tried relieves the pain at all
- Whether any activities, postures, or positions worsen the pain
Here at Crimson Chiropractic, neck pain treatment will begin with a complete chiropractic examination, during which Dr. Richardson or Dr. Fowler will perform various orthopedic tests to evaluate your spinal mobility and reflexes as well as postural, neurological, orthopedic, and physical health. The Doctors may also take X-rays in order to get a closer look at what is going on in your spine. Once they have had a chance to examine your X-rays and consider the results of your chiropractic exam, they will develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
Dr. Richardson and Dr. Fowler use a variety of chiropractic techniques to provide relief from neck and back pain, restore mobility, and promote total wellness. Some of the techniques utilized include:
- Manual chiropractic adjustments
- Drop table techniques
- Soft tissue and joint mobilization
- Active release techniques or ART
Neck pain relief often requires adjustment of the whole spine and even other parts of the musculoskeletal system, since misalignments can rob the cervical spine of needed stability. The specific techniques used vary from one patient to the next, depending on the patient's needs.
